Check out the Panaracer Pasela. They're available in a wire bead, and also have a "Tour Guard" model with an aramid belt in folding or wire bead.

I have about 650 miles on my Elirium 2 tires. I'm pretty pleased with them and they were fairly inexpensive when I bought them on sale.

The Ruffy Tuffy's will look classier, and are made for Riv by Panaracer IIRC
Other wise I'd recommend Panaracer Pasela TG's

Torelli "open tubular" clincher tires come in a gumwall version. Affordable and handmade in Italy.

not for general street riding.
wear very fast / torn sidewalls / zero puncture resistance
but ride quite nice due to the high TPI.

paves are one of the most tubular-like clinchers out there (along with the vittoria open corsa)...which is a good thing. light, supple, sticky, fast...but as has been said, soft and without puncture protection belting.

i've standardized on the open corsa cause they're a bit cheaper, but the pave is every bit as good. no gumwall in the OC

oh, that cinelli is ridiculous. could be a stunner if reasonably set up, but pure poser as shown. also, how can you tell they're tubies?

it says it's got a kevlar layer in the pave though.

Still, i'm not expecting it to last forever of course, i just want it cuz it's so pretty for the most part. Lol.

trust me - they feel great and handle well, but you'll flat all the time and have to buy new tires in 2 months. and I really hope you're not planning on skidding on paves - they'll last a week. when it comes to tire choice, aesthetics < practicality

just get the foldable pasela tourguards with a kevlar bead.
